Budgets due in CalPlan 

Your completed FY22 operating budget is due in CalPlan on Friday, August 20 by 7 pm.

The CalPlanning planning tools (CalPlan, HCP) will close after the deadline so that the Financial Planning & Analysis team can review the budget submissions. The CalPlanning reporting tools (CalRptg, HCPRptg, Smart View) will remain available, with the FY22 Operating Budget Planner Submission available for reporting.

Narrative template

The narrative template has been added to the divisional folders. In each division's folder, they are located in the Budget Narrative folder within the FY2021-22 Budget Process folder. The template is called “FY22 Budget Process Narrative”. 

By Friday, August 20, please complete the revised narrative template in your division folder and email dfl_concierge@berkeley.edu to indicate it is complete. 

Budget template

The budget template has been added to the divisional folders. In each division's folder, they are located in the Budget template folder within the FY2021-22 Budget Process folder. The template is called “FY22 Budget template”. 

The budget template contains three sections to complete: Budget Planning template, Expense Reductions, and Use of Reserves. The first tab outlines the instructions and the three different sections to complete are listed at the bottom of the Excel file in the different tabs.  For ease, we also added a Central Commitments tab outlining the FY2021-22 to FY2023-24 Campus Support Commitments (non General Allocation) to see what has been seeded in future years. 

Complete the budget template (all three sections) and email the Financial Planning & Analysis at  dfl_concierge@berkeley.edu to indicate it is complete.

  • Notes: provide brief notes for $ variances over +/- $500K or percentage variances over +/- 5% in the notes section on the budget template. 

II. Completing the "Expense Reductions" sheet

  • Itemize your planned expense reductions for FY22. Reductions should be broken down between compensation and non-compensation reductions. 

III. Completing the "Use of Reserves" sheet

  • Itemize your planned use of reserves for FY22, FY23, and FY24 for strategic initiatives (e.g. capital projects, revenue generating activities, etc.) only.
